If you’re like most parents faced with a wiggly tooth (hopefully your child’s) you have to be wondering– what’s the going rate these days?
It was a coin when you were a kid, but that was in the last century!
And don’t make the mistake of asking your child what the going rate is. They have this racket down. I figured that part out after I asked my son a few years ago and he said “about a million dollars.”
So to save you some grief, we had some bloggers weigh in on the going rate. Here are their answers.

I don't understand these moms who fork out the equivalent of college tuition for a dumb tooth. Come on. And it really makes the rest of us look cheap. I think $1 is plenty at least until gas prices come down a bit."
